linen sleeveless top

I bought a small piece of linen fabric a few months ago, it was 60cm wide (24 inches) I thought I could make a top out of it.

Tonight I had a bit of time so I used another top as a guide for cutting out a pattern and sewed it up.
I adjusted it to fit;
  • I lowered the neckline
  • I added darts at the armholes to stop gaping
  • I made it wider at the hips
  • I left the raw edge (selvedge) showing at the hem - it has a fun shabby chic look
  • I added a flower pin (made of fabric scraps) with raw edges to match the hem
